The Best Up & Coming Acts At The 2015 Governors Ball

The best part of any music festival is that moment of discovery. Whether it's a singer-songwriter you've never heard of, or a band that you've been on the fence about, live performances often do the trick. They can leave you obsessed with (or completely over) new voices.

Sure, headliners Drake and Florence + The Machine are worth being stoked about, but there are some newcomers and more seasoned artists who are finally getting the well-deserved spotlight. Now is your chance for the perfect preview. We've rounded up the must-see music newbies to see June this weekend, so get your schedule out and take some notes.
